I began running with The Donna Foundation's 26.2 with Donna training program during my breast cancer treatment. I can honestly say that this organization was pivotall in my recovery and mental outlook. The passion for curing breast cancer is amazing and I have been involved with the organization since 2012 as a top fundraiser and donor.

The DONNA Foundation has proven their commitment to their cause though strong oversight of how funds are utilized. The work hard to minimize overhead costs and flowing through as much support to breast cancer patients, survivors and research as possible.

I am so proud to be involved with The DONNA Foundation. I have met so many women whose lives have been transformed due to the kindness of the financial support TDF has been able to offer while they are going through breast cancer treatment. Some of these women had overwhelming bills and were struggling to support their families while they were out of work for treatment. Thanks to the amazing donors who give to the TDF and the partnerships the Foundation has in place, these women can focus on their health and wellbeing knowing that The DONNA is there alongside them.

The DONNA Foundation supports women and families who are dealing with breast cancer treatment, funds research at The Mayo Clinic, and celebrates survivorship at various community events. They’ve helped so many women in NE Florida and beyond, and I’m excited to watch them grow and continue to serve!

I am two time breast cancer survivor and love the mission of The Donna Foundation. The breast cancer journey is hard enough and having someone to help guide you on that journey is a blessing. I have participated in The 26.2 with Donna and fundraising for the foundation since 2011. I have met women that the foundation has helped and their testimonies make me proud to be a part of helping those on the cancer journey go from a place of fear to love. The Donna Foundation also funds ground breaking research to get us closer to a cure.

I have been a volunteer fundraiser for the Donna Foundation since 2012. Since then I have had the opportunity to see the impact they have had on those in need. Hearing testimonies from families that have been aided by the foundation over the years. A woman calling Friday needing a copay for a procedure on Monday, families struggling to navigate the system to get bill paying assistance, people wondering how they will afford groceries and medical bills. The work the foundation does is necessary and extremely valuable. I recently decided to become a board member as I felt I wanted to become more personally invested in the organization and continue to help them achieve their goals.

I started running the Donna Half Marathon in 2008 when my mother in law was undergoing treatment for recurring breast cancer. What I thought would be a one-time event has turned into the highlight of my February every single year. Not only does this organization put on a wonderful running event, but they are a true member of their community. The Donna Foundation has at the heart of it helping people, whether that's through life-saving medical research or through funds that go directly to patients who are struggling with making the choice to feed their family or undergo treatment for their cancer. I have met many wonderful people within the organization who have a true passion for others and I will always stand by their mission of helping those with breast cancer.
